From Gdansk: Elblag Canal Boat Cruise

5. From Gdansk: Elblag Canal Boat Cruise

The Elblag Canal, also called the Elblag-Ostroda Canal, is a 150-years-old canal in Poland that runs from Elblag to Ostroda. At over 80 km in length, it is the longest navigable canal still in use in Poland. It is also one of the most interesting canals in Europe. Elblag Canal’s uniqueness arises from its peculiar choice of engineering to tackle a particularly difficult section of the route where the water level rises by 100 meters. This particular section is located between Druzno Lake and Piniewo Lake, a distance of about 10 km. Because the difference in height was too large, it was impractical to build traditional locks. Instead, an ingenious system of inclined planes was employed where the boats are lifted out of the water and placed into tracks and dragged across dry lands. Itinerary: Meeting with driver and departure to Buczyniec. Boat cruise on the canal by four inclined planes ( Buczyniec, Olesnica, Jablonki, Jelenie ) Finish a boat tour in Jelenie and transport to Elblag Coffee break and free time in Elblag Driving back to Gdansk

During our tour we had two German-speaking guides. The Stutthof concentration camp was explained to us in great detail and all of our questions were answered. Our guide on Westerplatte was very informed. This made the tour very entertaining. Overall, we all really enjoyed the tour because we learned a lot of new things.

A great attraction on the Tricity map, beautiful views, friendly service and a beautiful yacht, you can admire the views both outside the deck and inside, an unforgettable experience! The attraction is easy to find, just enter the pier and walk to the end, the place is marked accordingly. I heartily recommend it!

Mike was cracked, an amazing guide. He needs a raise. He did an amazing job and was very insightful. He was also able to do it all in English. My whole group loved the tour he gave. He sounded cold but didn’t show it. We hope he is doing okay and would love to get tours from him in the future

Had a wonderful time with Victor. Very informative as well as a very safe driver. We would absolutely recommend this tour.

Everything was great, we really enjoyed it, it was a wonderful day, great and keep it up!
